Safe treatment options for heroin or opioid addictions include medications that reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting.2 Methadone and buprenorphine are essential medicines for the treatment of opioid use disorder; they help restore balance to brain circuits impaired by heroin and painkiller abuse.2 Many rehab centers combine these medications with behavioral counseling for a whole-patient approach known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which helps you overcome opioid addiction both physically and mentally.2
Benefits of MAT for opioid addiction include:2
- Decreased opioid use.
- Reduced number of opioid overdose deaths.
- Reduced criminal activity.
- Reduced transmission of infectious diseases.
- Increased social functioning.
- Improved retention in treatment.
- Improved outcomes for babies born addicted to opioids.
Some states are unable to provide MAT to all patients who suffer from opioid use disorder.2 However, many drug rehab centers in the Sayreville area offer MAT along with medical detox treatments and behavioral therapies aimed at treating addiction as a whole. Addiction treatments can be uniquely tailored to you or your loved one to support a healthy, complete recovery from opioid dependence.
